How do i connect my ps3 to my tv

You should have 2 options with your PS3 system that are included, and a couple more if you buy extra accessories. First, (and the best option) is to use the HDMI cable that came with your PS3. Simply plug it into the back of the PS3 and into one of the available HDMI slots on the TV (preferrably "HDMI 1", power up the PS3 with the switch in the back, then press the power button on the front. It should recognize that you've connected the PS3 to an HDMI cable and you just have to switch the TV to the "HDMI 1 input" with the remote. Done.

Next option (included with the PS3) is the RCA (A/V) cable which is the red/white/YELLOW cable. Connect these wires to the PS3 and the TV keeping with the color code and find the "Video 1" input with the remote. This time you may need to switch on the power of the PS3 in the back but press and HOLD the power button on the front until you hear 2 consecutive beeps which will switch the PS3 back to the factory setting of the A/V cable.

There are 2 other options using accessories for "Component Video" and "Coaxial" (same as a cable/satellite box) but the process is essentially the same. These cables are not usually included in a new PS3 console and will have to be purchased separate.

Also, in order from best picture to not-so-great picture would be: HDMI (Best), Component, A/V (RCA), and Coaxial (not-so-great). Good luck and enjoy your PS3, it has so much you can do, without having to pay extra like another popular console out there, like free blue-ray compatibility, free online game play, some free DLC for certain games, and now they're updating all the PS3's to support 3D GAMES AND MOVIES!!! :D

My ps3 won't can't to my hdmi on my westinghouse lcd what can I do.

there are a few HDMI cables out there that are proprietary so be sure you have a standard HDMI cable or better yet the one that came with the game console, secondly, if its a refurbished console you might have to hold the the power button for up to 5 seconds when switching it on for it to load the default settings as it would if it was being powered on for the first time, this should work, if it doesnt, switch HDMI cables and try it on a different tv, Hope this helps...

How to Hook Up HD AV Cable?

High definition multimedia interface cables are a type of audio/video (AV) cable that hook between your electronic media component and television. HDMI cables allow transfer of high quality audio and video signals between devices with the use of a single cable. HDMI is widely used with current generation video game systems, Blu-ray video players, and high-end video playback hardware. In order to make use of HDMI cables, your television must be compatible with the proper HDMI ports present on the set.
First,plug the HDMI cable into the port located on your media device. Then Plug the other end of the HDMI cable into an available HDMI slot on your television.
Switch the output on your television to the HDMI slot you have the cable connected to.

PS3 hdmi only working on some displays

I have noticed using an HDMI cable that with some of the newer tvs you have to set up the tv also to enable HDMI for a game system. Like you said before internet tv and blueray dvd player work fine. Try adjusting the settings on the tvs themselves. I have a 50in DLP mitsubishi, and had a very troubling time getting my ps3 to work on that particular tv set while it worked flawlessly on other sets. And what I had to do was enter my tv setup menu and then power on my ps3 with both my AV and HDMI cables connected, it would pick up the AV first. Then I would alter the video settings on the PS3 for HDMI, and unplug the AV cable. Exit the tv menu and then reenter it. Then I had to setup my HDMI port from the tv to game in order for it to work, where you can set options ar usually like cable/dvd/sat, and so on. Without my TV being set to game that way it would not work. Try this and see if it helps. Good Luck.

Cannot play video games downloaded

I was getting the same problem with my lcd tv. I was using a DVI to hdmi cable to connect the pc to the tv. I switched to a vga cable and I was able to finally get into the game. Once you get into the game make sure you change all the video settings to be compatible with your tv i.e. resolution for a 720p set should be 1366x768 on the game resolution, and you should also change the refresh rate to 60hz in the game if that is the max. on your tv.

Once you do this, you can then put your hdmi cable back in and get into the game. Every game I install I have to first run using the vga cable, and then switch to HDMI.

HDMI causes red lines (static?) on screen

im having the same problem to fix it i unhook my cable box (the video cables and the hdmi inputs to the tv) this stops the lines--try just the ps3 hooked to the tv and no other devices this should solve the problem--must be getting interference from some device

Picture goes to a lime green fuzz and then no piture or sound!

which AV connection are you using? HDMI or the cable supplied with the PS3, If using HDMI, you have to set the PS3 visual settings to HDMI, to do this, use the cable supplied with the PS3, and have the HDMI cable plugged in. Then while using the cables supplied with the PS3, switch the settings over to HDMI, then change the TV's input selector to your HDMI and confirm the settings changes. Hope it helps take care
